Ericsson has delivered such a top class model after years !
The Vivaz Pro is almost flawless except for 2 things.
1) Symbian OS ..... Could have been much better.
2) Camera .....Picture quality is below average in low light conditions, single LED flash is not good enough.
Apart from the above 2 flaws, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro is model which is highly recommended to all users.
This model has very similar features to that of Nokia N97 mini.

Travis, 15 Nov 2010Any idea when i will be able to access the ovi store on the vivaz pro or is there another plac... moreDude,
The Ovi store is for Nokia phones only. If you want Symbian apps for your Vivaz Pro, go to getjar.com or mobile 9.
Hope this helps
Sony Ericsson should revive the P series smart phones to rival the Nokia E series and the current crop of BlackBerries! I had the P800, the P910, and the best of them all, the P990. I swiched back to the Nokia E71 after my P990 became obsolete last 2008. Its been almost 3 years, its time for a come back! Vivaz Pro ain't no P series, but its the closest thing to it and is the best business smart phone SE has to offer. For Php 20,000, its got some stiff competition from the Nokia E7 and the Motorolla Milestone 2, plus the HTC Desire Z. Hope to hear from SE soon.
i was presented sony vivaz pro on my birthday, but since july, it has given trouble and i had to go to the shop twice for repairs. the battery is changed and software has been updated as claimed by the shop. okay i will try now on. but will never buy such a phone again. the shop also didnt know much about the product. god bless me
I really like it because it does what I want it to do.
I bought it because it's quite an attractive phone, pocketable size, comfortable qwerty, wifi, nice camera with basic functions.
If you want some crazy awesome os, with really good internet browsing and apps then this is definitely not the phone for you.
change the price for this phone shouldnt be 350 euro anymore this is for last 2 months
now is like 250 euro
philm, 12 Nov 2010 SO what it does the job it does not matter about what screen it has it will work this winter ... moreA reply to ur comment, i disagree with ur opinion of thinking that only geeks visit this website. I'm actually thinking of buying the Vivaz Pro phone but I'm not willing to spend my money on a phone i know nothing about. Therefore, i started looking for websites that offer a specification concerning this phone so that i wont seem stupid after buying it. :)
Also, it's not necessary to wear gloves when using a phone that has a resistive screen. My sister has the N5800, it's a resistive touch-screen and works fine with human fingers. The difference between resistive and capacitive screens is that capacitive is a new and improved (better) version of touch-screens.
new update sony ericsson be updating vivaz to symbian^3 ? currently the symbian s60 v5 is a total **** for touch use.
Petro, 11 Nov 2010I think s/he means "of". BUT this is an excellent phone! have you tried it dear
dean, 14 Nov 2010vivaz pro has any problem?pls answer bcoz im going to buy 1dont buy it, imagin that a 4 minutes call causes the phone to heatup and freez!!!!!
the only honest thing about the reviews of this phone is its camera, the video shots i had using it are the best, but nothing else is good in this phone.
can this unit go online using its integrated wifi especially in areas where there are unsecured wifi connection (hotspots)??? can its gps really work like the google map directing your input address?hope someone answers this. thanks so much!
Any idea when i will be able to access the ovi store on the vivaz pro or is there another place to get free apps? please could somebody let me know. The ovi store can't even let me know.
All - I got my S.E. Vivaz Pro on Friday. It is a HUGE disappointment: It is not 'fully blown' S60 with the relevant advantages associated with it e.g. in the Nokia sense, and it is not fully blown S.E. either. (So in the end it is neither the one nor the other, leaving you in the middle with NOT MUCH) Inconsistent UI all over . Lack of apps. Open office restrictions. Can't use OVI store. It is a pain to have the camera flash either OFF or ON, etc etc etc.
SONY, HOW COULD YOU PUT SUCH A HALF BAKED PRODUCT ON THE MARKET? :( Last S.E. for me.
